SERVING THE COMMUNITY Since 1975
3 Strong Generations of ELWOODS
Elwood’s Appliance started out as Sharkys Appliance (ED Sharky) in 1946. Roy Elwood had been a TV repairman for 20 years working with Magnavox TV. Ed Sharky wanted my grandfather (Roy) to come work for him—so he did in 1970. After almost 30 years in the business, ED Sharky decided to retire. Roy Elwood bought the business in 1975. Roy’s son Michael Elwood had also been in the TV repair business and went to work for his dad, Roy.
In the late 80s, Roy fell ill and left Elwood’s Appliance. He made a full recovery, but decided to stay retired and Michael ran the family business. In the mid 90s, Ben Elwood (Michael’s son) joined Elwood’s Appliance to where Michael and his son ran the family business. In the Mid 2000s, Michael fell ill and had to leave the family business. Ben Elwood is the current owner. We have been serving the Fort Wayne and surrounding communities. We have made it through many storms and still standing strong for our loyal customers.
“Thank you for your continued support.” – Ben Elwood
